Chemical Biology, Diagnostics and Therapeutics
We contribute to the progress of new developments in healthcare, the environment, bioenergy systems and bio-nanotechnology.
Our group's research across both chemistry and biology means we are multidisciplinary by nature. We investigate the properties of a wide range of biomolecules, including DNA, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. These can range from small synthetic models to biologically-derived macromolecular (large molecule) complexes.
We regularly work in collaboration within the University of Southampton, with other institutions or with industrial partners.
Our current research projects include:
We research the development of chemistry-driven approaches to modulate proteins’ physiological activity in a wide sense, with the ultimate goal to deliver new tools to study proteins’ function in living systems.
